Meet a local family in their home for enlightening conversation over a delicious home cooked meal and taste the truly authentic experience of Persian hospitality. Learn how to prepare the best local culinary delights and experience how an Iranian family lives and entertains their guests! Your Tehran tour begins with a ride on the longest metro line in the Middle East, where you’ll experience rapid local transportation that carries over 2 million people in and around the city daily. During the journey, be prepared that locals may come over for a chat and you’ll start to get a sense of Persian hospitality (and curiosity) right from the get go!
Finally arrive at the home of a local Persian family who will be your host for the day and with the help of your bilingual guide, get to know the family and experience their openness in discussing any topic from cultural traditions to political issues. This tour truly amplifies the immersive experience of Tehran. It is a unique opportunity to experience Iranian life up close and personal.
Persian food served at home is often very different to what is on restaurant menus. With the diversity of ethnic groups in Iran, there is a huge variety of local cuisine. Your hosts will explain how to prepare the dishes you’ll be sampling and give you an idea of the main flavours and local ingredients of Persian food. After learning about local life, culture, and filling up on Persian delicacies, walk off your meal with a short walking tour of the surrounding neighbourhood before taking the subway back to Ferdowsi subway station.
